Searching For Any Signs- but Only The Ones I want to See

Sip and Shine Podcast

So I am starting from Ground Zero right now- figuring out where my life is going- my son has been ill (which is putting it really lightly), my checking account is right there too as well as trying to figure out where I am going in my career. If I was on Match- wait, wait, Plenty of Fish (because it would have been to free)- I would be the one I would not answer back- "Creep City" right now.

So I am watching and waiting for signs from a higher power right now. But I only want to see the ones I want to see right now. For instance, I ran into the neighbor in the hallway who is not the Catholic type and he mentioned a rosary that was in the car that my son fell through and he misquoted the Bible. However! That misquote number I looked up was a good one for me- because it said, "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost." I was like wow- that sounds like my life right now- I am buying wine and stuff right now with limited funds. See- a higher power is watching me.

So I am watching and waiting for signs from a higher power right now. But I only want to see the ones I want to see right now.

Next sign, that I see, I listened to a back episode of Brandi Glanville's podcast- usually I don't listen to back episodes but she interviewed Brooke Lewis. I thought I was the leader of the Hot Mess Nation, but she was way more inspirational than most of Brandi's guests. I am hoping she has her own podcast- which she will end up being my new best friend podcast (bfp if you didn't know). Which one thing I have to give to Ms. Glanville- you can tell when she is bored by her guests or not. She is not fake. This podcast episode went deeper than her normal yawns on guests you can tell she was forced to have or asking about sex. If you want to listen, here is the link.

Brooke Lewis wrote, "Coaching From A Professed Hot Mess: TIps on Life, Love, Dating, Online Dating, Female Empowerment & LGBT Support From A Board Certified Life Coach, TV Dating Expert & Hot Mess." So I am taking this as a sign  I must read this book- and I am documenting the signs I am seeing around me with what direction I should be going. I am also trying to take one day at a time. And sure, I am stubborn because I am seeing only what I want to see- but those are just the positive signs. Not the oh, "he likes me because he said hi to me" signs, but the "it will get better" signs.
